Vondelpark - Amsterdam
The Vondelpark - stretching from the Stadhouderskade to the Amstelveenseweg - was built in the second half of the 19th century. At its official opening, the park was named Nieuwe Park (New Park). Two years later, the park was furnished with a statue of perhaps the Netherlands’ greatest poet and playwright, Joost van den Vondel. That’s when the park got its current name. Probably the country’s most famous park, it attracts locals and tourists alike.
